2004 Jaguar S-Type R 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

This car is fun to drive for a lot of
reasons. First is the shear power and
handling. The CATS system really lets
you toss it around with confidence.
The Brembo brakes are just awesome.
Second is the looks and compliments
you receive. My wife and I joke about
the looks we get from other S-Type
drivers and the leers we get from the
X-Typers. For the money, I really
dont think there is another car that
can beat its performance, style and
cachet. The platinum silver is just a
stunning color. The fit & finish are
superb. The car just makes you feel
good when your driving it. The gas
mileage is suprisingly good for a
390HP car. 24MPG, PA to FL and back


Best Features

Great looks, awesome power, handling and brakes. Outstanding styling. The way the car stands out in a crowd. Exclusivity. I have never seen another S-Type R out on the road. Are we the only ones who bought one? Blowing away the kid in the Mustang GT at a red light. :D


Worst Features

Better reliability. 7 visits to the dealer for electrical problems, driveline noises and vibrations. Get the CD changer out of the trunk. Better wipers. Better OEM tires. Replace the noisy continentals with Pirelli PZeros. Figure out a way to make 2 golf bags fit in the trunk.

2004 Jaguar S-Type 3.0 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The S-Jaguar turns heads when you are
driving. However the ride is rough in
comparison to our Lexus. You have to
push the doors hard for them to shut.
The contour seats looks good, but the
edges of seats when getting in are
hard. Once in and seated, the seats
are comfortable. The headrest are also
hard. The car was purchase on 31 Jul
04. We had an engine check light come
on in Aug 04. They had to replace the
gas tank. No other mechanical problems
with the car. Service personnel are
very friendly. Great styling.


Best Features

The exterior styling of the car turns heads. The interior styling with the combination wood looks great. The instrument panel and steering wheel has all of the gagets easily accessable for use.


Worst Features

The rough ride needs to be improved. The headrest and the edges of the seats are hard.

Review

I've had my 04 S-Type for a week now
and couldn't be happier. The V8
engine is quiet, yet very powerful.
The car rides smooth, I don't feel
every bump in the road, even with 18
inch rims on the car. A testiment to
the suspension. The interior is very
well thought out, a monster upgrade
from the 02 model. People notice this
car, so be prepared to get lots of
attention in it.
As for negatives, the upgraded Alpine
system is good, but nowhere near the
Bose systems found in many luxury
cars.
Also, ALL of the front speakers are in
the doors, the system needs some
tweeters on the dash for a more
complete sound in the front of the
car.


Best Features

Exterior looks, most unique car on the road, almost statuesque. The interior luxury is second to none, my previous Lexus interior doesn't hold a candle to the Jag. Having the back seats fold forward is a huge plus not found in many luxury cars of this type.


Worst Features

THE STEREO! An IN-Dash CD changer would be nice too.
